DripDrop and NVFC team up to prevent firefighter dehydration

July 9, 2024

Partnership to provide hydration support for firefighters

DripDrop Hydration, PBC, has partnered with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) for the fifth year to help prevent firefighter dehydration and heat-related injuries.

As reported by the NVFC, this initiative will donate 200,000 sticks of electrolyte drink mix to volunteer fire departments across the United States.

This donation is intended to support 1,000 volunteer fire departments, each receiving two cases (200 sticks) of DripDrop electrolyte drink mix.

The mix is designed to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes quickly, ensuring that responders can maintain their physical and mental performance during long incidents and wildfire responses.

Health and safety focus of the initiative

NVFC Chair Steve Hirsch emphasized the importance of the program: “The health and safety of volunteer firefighters is a top priority for the NVFC.

We are pleased to partner with DripDrop once again to ensure responders across the country stay hydrated and avoid illness this summer in order to come home safely and serve their communities at their best.”

John Shea, CMO of DripDrop Hydration, expressed pride in the partnership: “DripDrop is proud to partner with the National Volunteer Fire Council and its meaningful efforts to support fire and EMS organizations through a wide range of services and programs.

“We are privileged to have our product trusted by firefighters around the country and are pleased to be able to fuel these heroes in their efforts to keep communities safe.”

How firefighters can participate

Active volunteer firefighters in the U.S. can enter for a chance to win a product donation between July 8 and July 21 at 11:59 PM PDT.

Only one entry per fire department will be accepted.

A total of 1,000 fire departments will be randomly selected from all eligible entries.

Selected firehouses will be notified by email the week of July 21st and will receive two 100-count cases of DripDrop.
